You can walk down to the point, sit on a bench,view the lake on both sides and admire the Gordon Lightfoot monument which depicts his best songs. Better yet, bring your smart phone and listen to his songs at the same time.

Take a few minutes to walk through Tudhope Park and visit the Gordon Lightfoot monuments. They are gorgeous! What a tribute to an amazing Canadian artist.

The sand, the water, the kids playground, everything about Tudhope is great. The splash pad is awesome, there are paths to go for walks, the swimming area is generally clean and seaweed free. It can get crowded so get there early!

Excellent, modern park and splash pad for the kids. Lots of room to take dogs for walk without bothering those who don't like dogs. Lots of grassy and natural areas with shady places. And a beach. We always go here when we are in Orillia.

Used this as a great starting point for a morning bike ride. It is on the trail system which takes you to Couchiching Beach and beyond. There are a couple of water parks along the route including play structures.

We have enjoyed Tudhope Park for the Mariposa Festival, which takes over the park for one weekend in early July. It is lovely, full of walking and biking trails, large trees to provide shade, places to swim and even a kids play structure. Enjoy it for a picnic, a walk, or to watch the boats on Lake Couchiching. And now... More
